Moviegoers were in for a surprise when they watched the Hobbs & Shaw post-credits scene. The Hollywood movie, which released over the weekend, featured a cameo by Ryan Reynolds. No, he was not seen in the movie playing his iconic role of Deadpool. Instead, director David Leitch introduced the actor as an agent in the movie. Reynolds essayed the role of Hobbs' "best friend" CIA agent Locke. Although he was an agent, Reynolds added his own touch to the character in the hilarious post-credits scene. 

The character was seen discussing a new virus with Hobbs before he went about ranting about Game of Thrones' ending and spoiled the HBO show for all. Although the actor tickled the funny bone with his cameo, questions about his possible introduction in a full-length role began making the rounds. Fans were curious if his cameo was a tease to his possible role in Hobbs & Shaw sequel. 

Speaking with Syfy Wire, director David teased the possibility of seeing more of Ryan in upcoming Hobbs & Shaw movies. “Hopefully we can spin [him] out into more episodes of Hobbs & Shaw,” he said. Recalling how he roped the actor into the movie, the filmmaker said that Reynolds did the cameo as a "favour." 

“We had that exposition of the virus, and I called him and said, 'Hey, I have this scene, it’s stuffy exposition, plot stuff, so would you consider coming in and let’s make it fun?'" Leitch said. Reynolds was game for the role and blended his own twist into the cameo. “I sent him the pages and he added the special Ryan dust,” Leitch laughed. While we wait to see if Reynolds would be seen in the spin-off series, we are enjoying his cameo in Hobbs & Shaw.
